I love white wine, but noticed that I tend to break out after drinking this. My face becomes red and patchy, as well as my neck. I have read that sulfates can be harmful to people that have allergies, asthma, which I do. Are there any white wines that do not contain sulfates? I also like dried fruit, but read that those contain sulfates too.

All wines contain natural occuring sulfites to some degree. The key is purchasing wines that do not have any added sulfites. I am allergic to sulfites. Here are the names of two vineyards that produce organic wines. Frey Vineyards and LaRocca Vineyards. Both have websites that you can go to. If you have any questions, let me know.
